Under the supervision of the College Liaison for Western Piedmont Community College and Burke County Public Schools, the Career Coach will be placed in the five local high schools to help high school students define their career aspirations and to explore community college and other post-secondary programs, including work force training, that can help students achieve their educational, career, and financial goals. The overarching goal of the Career Coach is to help high school students see their high school education as the beginning, not the completion, of their educational journey, empower students to make informed decisions about their career and educational plans, and prepare them for success in postsecondary educational training.
